+++Forwarded Text Subteam Issues ---

We have been requested to confirm the consensus on longdesc reached at
the Text Subteam teleconference this past Monday, 17 May.

We are further requested to confirm the Task Force consensus according
to the published Consensus Procedures document at:

Therefore, we will test for consensus on both resolutions approved by
the Text Subteam during our regular Task Force teleconference this
coming Thursday, 19 May.

If the consensus reached at the Text Subteam is confirmed during the
Thursday meeting, we will further open a WBS survey for three working
days beginning Thursday as provided for in the Consensus Procedures

We will vote on each resolution separately, just as was done in the Text
Subteam, so that it is possible to approve either, neither, or both. The
two resolutions are:

	The Task Force supports the Issue 30 Change Proposal at:

	The Task Force supports a Formal Objection escalation should it 
appear that HTML last call is to be published without the longdesc as 
in our supported proposal

IRC: server:, port: 6665, channel: #html-a11y.

During the conference you can manage your participation with Zakim
commands as follows:
   61# to mute yourself
   60# to unMute yourself
   41# to raise your hand (enter speaking queue)
   40# to lower your hand (exit speaking queue)

The system acknowledges these commands with a rapid, three-tone
confirmation.  Mobile phone users especially should use the mute  
if they don't have a mute function in their phone.  But the hand-raising
function is a good idea for anyone not using IRC.

     There will also be an IRC channel available. The server is,
     the port number is 6665 (note this is not the normal default) and 
the channel is #html-a11y.
